Responsible person refresher

1 Day/s

CPD Hours: 7

Classroom, online, in-house

This is a one day refresher course for Responsible Persons (RP) and Deputy RPs that have already attended their initial RP training.

Section 2.4 of Directive 2013/C 343/01 states that RPs should receive regular training to maintain their competence in GDP. Indeed, MHRA Inspectors expect to see evidence of this type of training in your training file and you should attend this type of training every 18 to 24 months.

The refresher course is aimed at RP’s and Deputy RP’s who have already undertaken initial RP training but who need to keep updated with current regulations and expectations of the competent authorities for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Note, it is not a suitable alternative for those who have yet to undergo initial RP training.

This ‘update’ course would also benefit quality managers, and personnel in regulatory, compliance, distribution, warehousing, supply chain management and customer service who need to appreciate the implications of the changes. It is designed for all those who need to understand the revised key GDP quality components necessary to operate as a holder of an MHRA or EU.

The topics covered during the course are driven by regulatory and industry changes and also delegate feedback from prior RP Refresher courses and our RP Forum sessions.

    By the end of the course you will:

    • Address Section 2.4 of Directive 2013/C 343/01 requirement for ongoing training and personal development 
    • Understand the very latest EU directives/regulations and guidelines (including the ‘Orange Guide’)
    • Be aware of common deficiencies, inspection hot topics and how to stay compliant 
    • Share best practice ideas, problem solve and network
